On Tuesday 4th October year 5 visited the Space Centre in Leicester. After an excitable (and slightly noisy!) journey we arrived.
Our first stop was a workshop about the Earth, Sun and Moon. The children really impressed the tutor with their scientific knowledge.
After a short lunch break we headed into the Centre to explore the different stations which were both informative and interactive. A highlight for many of them I'm sure was the ride on the simulator!
Lastly we watched a Planetarium show which gave the children a very realistic insight into the conditions in space and how an astronaut must prepare.
